I wouldn’t exactly call this a bold lip, not really red or pink either. It’s a good anytime lip color. I found this lipgloss at the bottom of one of my random beauty boxes. First off, this gloss gets major points from me because it isn’t packed with an overdone old lady scent like many inexpensive glosses.
I do believe there is such thing as the “perfect red” lip. But it’s not my style to rely on just one color in any makeup category! Take a look at the lip with and without the gloss.
Today’s Lip of the Day is a mix of budget brands. I totally forgot I owned the Maybelline lipgloss, and it worked perfectly with the Black Opal lipstick!
My go-to brown lip liner is NYX Expresso. It’s the $3 knockoff for MAC Chestnut. I apply it first, then rub my lips together like there’s no tomorrow. The goal is to not have a super defined lip aka no harsh brown lines. The particular Black Opal lipstick that I have isn’t as smooth and creamy as the others that I own, and kind of has that old lady lipstick smell. Either way, I’m pleased with the results!
MAC Styledriver ‘Driven by Love’. Everything I dreamed it would be. Literally. It was the exact color that I chose for my submission for the “MAC Blogger Obsession” collection. Not at all in a bitter, “I can’t believe they didn’t choose me kind of way”, or a “they took my idea kind of way (because these collections are created months upon months in advance)”. I was more so thinking “I should have known this color was coming out, so I should have chosen a whole different concept” kind of way. I don’t think I can give explicit details, because we signed contracts. All in all, I love this lip color!!!
Eden Rouge Mattene lipstick is an instant winner just because it’s a Mattene. I live for them. They are silky smooth, weightless and last forever. It’s not the most interesting red lipstick I’ve ever seen in life, but it sure does look good!
